Boaters asked to watch for manatees
OKEECHOBEE Several manatees have been sighted in Taylor
'Creek between the Taylor Creek Bridge and the drawbridge on U.S,
441 S.E.

not to hit one of the gentle creatures. -
According to Captain Barry 'Chop' Lege, from the Conservation

outboard motor.

Signs

Continued From Page 1
rule of thumb to remember is that
normally that portion of land
between the ditch and the road is
the county right-of-way.
When a county employee
mows the right-of-way, he said
they have to take the time to
remove signs. They are on a tractor
and have nowhere to collect signs.
He said it is getting to the point
where it would be less costly to
have someone come along in a
truck, and remove all the signs
rather than having the mower
operators continually stopping to
remove signs.
While he was referring to coun-
ty rights-of-way, there are, similar
regulations dealing with City of
Okeechobee rights-of -way and


mlin


state rights-of-way.
"Unauthorized use of the public
right of way is prohibited.by Florida
law. Illegal use of the right-of-way
is a crime. Each day a violation con-
tinues, it is a separate offense,"
according to Section 337.406 of the
Florida statutes.:
Another Florida statute,
106.1435, states that any candidate
must make a good faith attempt to
remove all campaign advertise-.
ments within 30 days after the elec-
tion.
. The Florida Department of
Transportation (DOT) put out a
notice stating that signs placed on
state rights-of-way will be picked
up and placed in the one of DOT's
maintenance yards. However, the
announcement says the candidate
will be given a courtesy call advis-
ing of the sign removal and the
location of the maintenance yard.
City of Okeechobee Administra-


tor Brian Whitehall said that most
of the signs he has seen on city
rights-of-way were advertising out-
of-town businesses, and that such
signs as well as campaign signs are
"absolutely prohibited" and will be
removed.
County attorney John Cassels,
was quoted in the memorandum
given to all candidates by the
supervisor of elections, as saying,
"Unauthorized signs within county
rights-of-way are subject to being
summarily removed and destroyed
by the county at the 'owner's
expense. Signs illegally placed will
be moved by the county and the
candidate advertised will be
charged for removal. This includes
signs posted on utility poles within
the county right-of-way."
Even if campaign signs are
legally placed on private property,
they must be removed after the
election. In this specific case, Flori-


da statutes allow for municipalities
to impose more stringent require-
ments. Therefore, City of Okee-
chobee ordinances require cam-
paign signs to be removed within
10 days after the election and
Okeechobee- County Code
requires campaign signs be
removed within 15 days of the elec-
tion.

Lieutenant K. J. Ammons of the
Okeechobee County Sheriff's
Office (OCSO) said there have
been reports of two different candi-
dates who have had their cam-
paign signs disfigured. He said that
disfiguring a campaign sign is a
misdemeanor under Florida
statutes and that the sheriff's office
is stepping up patrols to .prevent
this from continuing to happen.

He said anyone caught would
be prosecuted.

san backlash.-
"People call it a cut in
Medicare. It's not a cut," Bush
said of the plan in February. "It's
slowing down the rate of
growth."
Some analysts say the debate
is too polarized and it is unlikely
serious discussion will occur
until after the 2008 presidential
election.


Dr. David Becker, a gastroen-
terologist from Clearwater, said
a lack of action could be devas-
tating to practices like his where
more than half the patients are
on Medicare.
He said Florida medical prac-
tices can't turn their backs on
the state's roughly 3.5 million
Medicare and Tricare recipients
and would instead be forced to
lay off employees, scale back
services and defer spending on
new medical equipment.
"These cuts will have a pro-
found impact," Becker said.

4 OPINION


Speak Out

Have an opinion or a question about a public issue? Post it anytime
at the Okeechobee issues forum at http://www.newszapforums
.con/forum58. It is a hometown forum so visit the page as often as you
would like and share your comments (but no personal attacks or pro-
fanities, please). You can also make a comment by calling our Speak
Out 24-hour opinion line at (863) 467-2033, fax (863) 763-5901 or send-
ing e-mail to okeenews@newszap.com. You can also mail submis-
sions to Okeechobee News, P.O. Box 639, Okeechobee, Fla. 34973.
Comments will be published in the newspaper as space permits.
ISRAEL: Could someone explain to me again the benefits we reap
from our disastrous alliance with Israel? I keep forgetting what they
are. In fact, it seems to me that with friends like Israel, we don't need
enemies. No, I am not Muslim. I only mention that so that our Muslim
friends in Okeechobee are not targeted for abuse.

ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS: Avon Park is expected to pass legislation
this month making it illegal to rent housing to or employ illegal immi-
grants. Many other towns across the U.S. are also declaring their towns
no sanctuary for illegal immigrants. How about it mayor, it'd be about
time?! Enough is definitely enough!

SHUTTLE: This is about the shuttle: quit taking our hard-earned tax
money and-throwing it away. They can use it for something else. They
have killed a lot of people with crashes and all that, it is stupid what
they are doing. I resent it. If God wanted us to be up there, he would
have made a better way to get there.

Letter to the Editor


Become part
of the team
You can tell it is election time
and the Speak Out section is print-
ing more items which are direct
hits on the local elected officials.
The political items are a year-
round normality, but every two
years at this time we see a higher
occurrence of such.
Normally, I don't read the
Speak Out column because I per-
sonally believe you should sign
your name and be accountable
for your comments. It is easy to
criticize and take shots at your
elected city and county officials


when you don't have to give your
identity.
Any local elected official I have
had the opportunity to speak with
regarding Speak Out usually
agrees it only serves to project the
wrong image of our community
by deception and half truths.
Don't worry, we all know
Speak Out is alive and well and
there is no chance the Letters to
the Editor are going to expand
and take over the space afforded
to the Speak Out area on this
page. My letter today will proba-,
bly fuel the comments to Speak
Out to a record level.

Dear Voters and Okeechobee County Taxpayers,


Since 1994 it has been my honor and privilege to serve you as your County Commissioner in
District 4. During this time I have been committed to providing the leadership necessary for our
County Government to be efficient, responsible, and accountable to you, the taxpayers of our
County. I am not a politician but rather a concerned citizen holding public office. We have made
significant progress over the years being a member of your County Government but do
acknowledge there is still more work to be done and I need your help to make it happen!

Our County is facing many difficult challenges. In the past, the growth of Okeechobee County has
been at a steady pace, but as we both know, this pace is rapidly changing. I pledge to provide you
, with the professional leadership and the experience required to manage growth responsibly. My
priority will be to preserve the quality of life in our County we enjoy while encouraging the
appropriate level of growth necessary for a healthy and diversified economy.


Over the past term in office, the time required to
fulfill my duties as your County Commissioner
has increased. I do not consider this a part time
occupation, nor does the public. I pledge to
provide the time necessary for my elected duties
by being on the job as your full time County
Commissioner

In closing, I thank you for the opportunity of
serving you as your County Commissioner in

We are pleased to take this opportunity to tell all of Okeechobee, about-a special employ-
ee of ours, Kris Sweatt. Kris, has "Run" our service department for the past 2 summers
and what a Fantastic Job she is doing! Her duties include scheduling all break-downs or
service calls, air-conditioning, heating, refrigeration, ice machines it doesn't matter to Kris.
She just gets it done, and in a timely manner. As if this wasn't enough of a responsibili- ]
ty, Kris also tracks our residential and commercial maintenance programs. Quite a feat,
in itself! Needless to say, Kris has her hands full with 5 service techs to dispatch daily.
The title of accounts co-ordinator just doesn't seem to do justice, for all she does. Hat's
off and Kudos to you Kris, for a job well done. You are certainly appreciated!
CONGRATULATIONS!!!
